With malicious hackers attacking organizations of all sizes, MSPs have to continually beef up their cybersecurity to protect both themselves and their customers.

We recently highlighted the companies that rank as the top experts in cybersecurity on the Channel Futures 2023 MSP 501 list of top MSPs in the world. These 61 MSPs offered clients the right managed security solutions, built their own in-house stacks and SOCs, and showed significant growth, which were among the main criteria needed to make this list.

MSPs that provide IT and security solutions to SMBs globally are in the early stages of a huge boom cycle, said Fred Voccola, Kaseya's CEO. Their SMB customers are increasing their spending and investment in technology at a rate three to four times gross domestic product (GDP) expansion, with little plans of slowing anytime soon.

"This is very similar to what we saw in the enterprise in the mid-'90s through 2010, where enterprise organizations invested hundreds of billions of dollars on technology as they digitally transformed to become tech-first companies," he said. "The same investment cycle has begun to hit the SMB sector, as technology investments represent the best and often only option for SMBs to consider in their journeys."

As part of our series, "Faces of the Partner," we've spoken to the leaders of five MSPs that have distinguished themselves as top experts in cybersecurity. Read more in our slideshow above.
